Stronger Families. Stronger Communities. Stronger Washington.
The newly redistricted 20th District includes parts of South Thurston County, Lewis and Cowlitz counties East of Interstate 5, and parts of North Clark County including the cities of Woodland, La Center, and Ridgefield. To say the least, the 20th District is filled with amazing history and traditions and has a lot of economic potential if we create the right economic atmosphere. Together, let’s get Washington working again for our families and our businesses.
Issues Important to Our Community
How can we make it better?
Reducing the Tax Burden
As your representative in the 20th Legislative District, I took the taxpayer pledge and voted against the unnecessary tax increases. Government should be putting money back in the pockets of working families and small businesses where it belongs- that is how I voted. I believe we must invest in our families and communities by giving the hard earned money back! Click HERE to see my voting record on taxes and research legislation in the 2021-2022 session!
Small business owners are the life blood of our state. And, make up the greatest percentage of our businesses. It is not enough to say #ChooseLocalFirst or #ShopLocal. This session, I fought for our local businesses and family own shops.
Communities and Family Investment
I am proud and honored to serve as the Assistant Ranking Member of the House Capital Budget Committee. The House Capital Budget, also called the Construction Budget, invests in local projects to help create jobs and opportunities, serves critical needs, and improves the quality of life for citizens across our great state and in the 20th District.

I believe the best way to support working families is by investing in them and their communities. Families know better how and where to spend their money. Communities know better how and where to spend their money. I am committed to investing in YOU.
Protecting our Rights and Freedoms
As your state representative, I am sworn to uphold both the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the state of Washington. I continue to support your constitutional rights from my first vote on the House floor to open-up the Legislature, take emergency powers back from the Governor, to the last weekend of session opposing restrictions on you right to possesses a firearm.
The Washington State Constitutional clearly states that “all political power is inherent in the people.” The right to speak freely, assemble, parent, and protect. . . .
At the same time as law enforcement officers were losing tools to keep us safe, laws were being passed to lessen criminal behavior, and your rights to protect yourself and family infringed upon. I will continue to fight for safer streets and communities and put our families first.
